Hi guys, so i’ll admit, total noob here but I’ve been very much enjoying learning about HA!
Everything was working fine with my BLINK integration and I had some useful automations set up. But… then i keep getting this email asking me to verify my device. At the same time all my blink devices become ‘unnavailable’ in HA. Nooo!
I don’t expect anyone to walk me through a fix. But is there a fix? Where would I need to go to find it?
The issue has to do with the way tokens are refreshed in the library and has no known fix yet. This problem exists outside of the home-assistant ecosystem so changes within home-assistant cannot address this problem (it must be fixed in the library)
I’m in the UK and get the 2FA email every 24 hours (at the same time I started / restarted HA), however my kit keeps working.
Have you checked that your Blink account still works in the app? Are you using a very frequent scan interval (i.e. more frequent than the default 5 minute)?
I ask because Blink have a bit of a reputation for locking accounts for “security reasons” (a.k.a integrations that aren’t officially endorsed) and have a tendency not to notify the account holder.
Mine’s an old account so might be on legacy endpoints I guess
I do nothing more than arm / disarm the sync module based on presence and the house hasn’t been empty since March as we both currently work from home - it’s entirely possible that I might see some issues if the automations were in use.
